In the late 1960s and through much of the 1970s, Michael Dobo had an all-access backstage pass to many of the foremost musicians and luminaries of the day. When he wasn't making his rent trailing Chevy Chase around 30 Rock, discreetly shadowing Jane Fonda in a Santa Monica supermarket or impairing his hearing while stumbling around countless stages amid huge stacks of screaming Marshall amps, Dobo and his Nikon also were providential eyewitnesses to the Sixties Counter Culture Revolution as it unfolded.

In addition to daily assignments, during this period he shot album art for Alex Taylor, Bonnie Raitt and Maria Muldaur, (whom he also Road Managed during her Midnight At The Oasis Tour), worked as Annie Leibovitz's first studio assistant and briefly covered several Presidential campaigns. Despite this peripatetic existence, Dobo found a spare moment or two over those years to capture numerous eclectic images of everyday life. The "Photo by Michael Dobo" credit line has appeared in Time, Life, Newsweek, People, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, TV Guide and scores of other publications, as well as on 60 Minutes, Saturday Night Live and various TV and theatrical documentaries.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Dobo free-lanced in Los Angeles as a videographer on television and motion picture productions, including the 1993 Academy Award©-winning documentary The Panama Deception. In 2002, he founded Earthlingua Corporation, and is currently developing an original series for television while producing and performing audio programs for a popular music venue in southern New England.
